Mitchell Goldhar Net Worth
Mitchell Goldhar Net Worth: Mitchell Goldhar is a Canadian real estate businessman who has a net worth of $1.9 billion. If the legend is true, Mitchell Goldhar was the one to pay an unexpected visit to Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton in the 1990s, asking for a partnership. He was so determined to build the iconic American stores north of the border that Walton had eventually agreed to give him a chance. Thus, Goldhar became Wal-Mart's go-to developer in Canada. In other words, he first built SmartCentres, the bulk of which are anchored by the retail giant, and then sold them to property managers or real estate investment trusts like Calloway. Speaking of Calloway, he holds there a 21% stake. Nowadays, he carries out his managerial duties out of SmartCentres' headquarters, known as "the Igloo," in Vaughn, Ontario. Already an owner of Israeli soccer team Maccabi Tel Aviv FC, Goldhar opted to give $1 million as a support to the Brain Campaign for the Canadian Sports Concussion Project that funds research into the effects of repetitive concussions.
